Scattered Oats Stitch

Scattered Oats Stitch

Non - Reversible
Multiples of 4 + 1
photo shows DK weight, size 6 needles
swatch is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches, 33 stitches, 40 rows

This stitch provides an interesting textural pattern that is a lot easier to knit than it appears. Instead of using a cable holder, it's very easy for the Right Cross to just knit the third stitch first, then knit the first two and slip them all off and for the Left Cross, knit from the back into stitch two and three, then knit the first and slip them all off.

The fabric doesn't have much drape, do to all the criss-crossing of stitches, but is a nice weight for most sweaters. It wouldn't be bad as a scarf. Though non reversible, the reverse side has an interesting purl design.
